Les Miles should keep close tabs on comments made by his players. That comment by Francois should never, never have been made public.

I don't understand why anyone would pronounce a team dead at this point in the season. Did these people learn NOTHING from last year? It's like the pundits declaring USC dead after losing to Oregon State. Three weeks later, they'll probably be ranked 6th. It's just stupid to make statements like that right now.
As far as Ricky Jean-Francois, the only way to keep his comments from hitting the paper is to restrict him from talking to the media. You've got to remember that these are 18, 19, 20-year-old kids. They're gonna say stupid stuff from time to time. But once the stupidity left his mouth, there was no way to keep it under wraps, especially since the quote originally appeared in an Orlando newspaper.

2003!!! LSU lost to Florida...@ Florida.

They then won out and proceeded to the National Championship game, where they beat Oklahoma 21-14.

I'm not saying it is going to be easy or that LSU will win out... But, damn!!! alot can happen, LSU still has 8 games to play!
